Invisalign Insider: 5 FAQs Straight from the Experts

You probably have questions if you’ve been considering Invisalign to correct your smile. Read on as the dental professionals at Mountain Town Dental answer the top five questions about Invisalign:

What Exactly Is Invisalign?

As the modern alternative to traditional braces, Invisalign consists of invisible aligners custom-crafted for your teeth and their unique positioning. Like braces, they adjust your teeth gradually over time without the pain or social embarrassment of “metal mouth.” 

How Often Do I Wear My Aligners?  

Dutifully wearing your aligners 20 to 22 hours each day will give you the best results. You remove them to eat, brush, or floss, which wasn’t possible with traditional braces. Being able to take them out momentarily makes maintaining dental hygiene easier and keeps you healthier.

Will Wearing Invisalign Make Me Talk Funny?

We get this question more often than you’d imagine! Some wearers experience a slight lisp until they get used to wearing it. After your tongue gets used to having it around, any impediment disappears, usually after a week or so. 

Is Invisalign Painful?  

During the first few days of wearing Invisalign, you’ll likely feel a little pressure and discomfort. This is perfectly natural. It means your teeth are moving to their new position.

How Long Does Invisalign Treatment Last?

Treatment duration varies from person to person but averages around 12 to 18 months. The more dedicated you are to wear your device faithfully for the recommended hours per day, the sooner you’ll reach your goal.
